    RE: Chilcot Report: Tony Blair Set To Be Savaged In ‘Absolutely Brutal’ Iraq War Inquiry Verdict “The long-awaited Chilcot report into the Iraq war is reportedly set to savage Tony Blair and other former government officials in an “absolutely brutal” verdict on the failings of the occupation, The Independent reports. ” To Begin with, the War was itself a War Crime, based on Lies of the Satan George Bush and his poodle Tony Blair. Lies of WMD, Weapons of Mass Destruction. 2003 invasion of Iraq https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2003_invasion_of_Iraq According to U.S. President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair, the coalition mission was “to disarm Iraq of weapons of mass destruction, to end Saddam Hussein’s support for terrorism, and to free the Iraqi people.” General Wesley Clark, the former Supreme NATO Allied Commander and Joint Chiefs of Staff Director of Strategy and Policy, describes in his 2003 book, Winning Modern Wars, his conversation with a military officer in the Pentagon shortly after the 11 September attacks regarding a plan to attack seven Middle Eastern countries in five years: “As I went back through the Pentagon in November 2001, one of the senior military staff officers had time for a chat. Yes, we were still on track for going against Iraq, he said. But there was more. This was being discussed as part of a five-year campaign plan, he said, and there were a total of seven countries, beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and Sudan.” Others play a much greater emphasis on the impact of the 11 September 2001 attacks, and the role this played in changing U.S. strategic calculations, and the rise of the freedom agenda. According to Blair, the trigger was Iraq’s failure to take a “final opportunity” to disarm itself of alleged nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons that U.S. and British officials called an immediate and intolerable threat to world peace.

    Wow! This guy lead a process that eventually killed nearly a million people. Created a fertile ground for ISIS to rise. Which in turn brutalized a whole region and beyond. The world now seesaws on the edge of 3rd World War as a direct outcome of Blair Bush stupidity & brutality. And the much hyped Chilcott report to just damage Blair reputation? Excuse me and ouch! That must really hurt Mr. Balir. Is that British Justice at work? Only patronizing, arrogant British hypocrisy can turn out this kind of rubbish. What on earth makes these people think that they can save us Sri Lankans? From our own despots? Cheers! PS: Meanwhile, a few small scale war criminals from impoverished Africa are languishing in The Hague. Awaiting lengthy jail sentences. Some are already serving. Blair is globetrotting giving speeches on peace and reconciliation at a very high fee. Chilcott will do nothing to change that situation.

      He was warmly welcomed by the GOSL a few months ago. Of course, that was before this came out.

    War criminal and mass murderer Tony Blair need not worry. Justice is for sale. Money talks and genocidal psychopaths like B-LIAR will walk free. The Lord Chilcot report will be sugar coated, chilled and flushed down the luv. Tony Blair Associates knows whose palms to grease for this report to be buried and investigators to be minced-meat like the assassinated Dr. David Kelley. Followed by others are government scientist that befell the same fate to a mysterious dragnet of assassins both in UK and USA. Even journalist Michael Hastings were not spared.

    Tony Blair is another war criminal who should be charged and indicted in the Hague. This scoundrel along with that bastard from the USA by the name GW Bush, Condi Rice, Colin Powell, Dick Chenney, Rumsfeld, the ones from Lanka all should go to rot in hell for what they have done to the people.

    At least in a country where there is nothing called human rights in their constitution (for that matter there is no constitution), something is coming up for an unwanted destruction of human lives in the pretext of creating a war on a bogey of WMD which was never fished out. It looks that US leaders then, will not be called to pay for or at least blamed officially. Who really wanted Saddam out? (Saddam himself is not innocent). Certainly neither the US nor the UK but those countries act on consideration of other unseen hands. It is to be noted that conservatives supported Blair to the hilt in this exercise but they go unscathed and that is the beauty of it and these are the countries who want to preach and make others pracise of virtues.

    An inquiry was held and a report was produced. Even though the report was blaming the former PM, it is released to the public. Can we expect anything similar to that happening here in SL? This is real democracy.

      Proudman An inquiry was held and a report done, but you Kalu sudas do not accept it. You want one written by a sudda / suddas! Then you can all accept it even if it is full of lies, after all it was written by suddas that you always look up the backside! Keep looking up the backside of suddas, the country is now ‘developing’!

    More than Blair the biggest war criminals are Bush and Cheney. They blatantly lied about WMDs, made Saddam Hussein look dangerous, and used false intelligence, to sell the war to the American people, and the zionist media of the US, helped sell it for them, by not challenging their lies. Bush and Cheney were also surrounded by zionist neocons like Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, Bill Kristol, Eliot Abrams, Alan Dershowitz, and so many others. Some of the same crowd also tried to persuade President Obama to attack Iran. They were all pro Israel and wanted these Arab nations bombed and flattened. Unfortunately, Bush and Cheney have got away with war crimes, which cause the deaths of thousands and thousands of poor Iraqis, opened the nation to terrorists, caused the sectarian wars going on now, turned the nation to rubble, and to this day is a huge disaster, with people unable to have a normal life, because of suicide bombers and car bombs killing hundreds. Iraq will never be the same again, and the loss of innocent lives goes on. Hussein was bad, but now Iraq is in a worse situation. Bush, Cheney, and the other criminals have no remorse, nor ever admit that they had made a big mistake, that not only cost Iraq too much in lives and leaves it in chaos, but together with Afghanistan will cost trillions of dollars. Cheney’s buddies, the Defense contractors (and weapons manufacturers) have become wealthier after these wars.

    No wonder Blair converted to Catholicism. Its the only way he can have his sins forgiven.

    I think the Media (including Chilcot) should have examined Mr Blair, Mr Bush, but most of all Pope Benedict XVI. Given the Vatican’s closeness to the CIA, Blair’s timely confession, the Pope’s friendliness with the Khoumeni, the Lockerbie Disaster and the Pope’s intervention, T Blair’s attempts to christianise Britain, to cover over Northern Irish terrorism, the Iraqi Invasion was the necessary Crusade-like measure to advance Christian (especially Catholic ) boundaries in the Far East and throughout the world. . . Bene XVI should repeat his hate-filled remarks about Islam NOW, as he did before Blair’s conversion….
